|Marriage was always considered to be between a man and women in the church. Marriage is a religious term and the law in America reflected that, until it was changed under Obama. Framing it as “marriage equality” makes it easy to call anyone who doesn’t agree a bigot.
The law that gay or lesbian individuals can marry not only broke with tradition, but also was in direct conflict with some Christian beliefs. Although it is widely held by many Christian denominations that people should have the right to love whomever they want to, the state telling the church what to believe crossed the line.
